Vodka pasta sauce
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 cup vodka
1 cup chicken stock
1 can crushed tomatoes (32 ounces)
Coarse salt and pepper
16 ounces of pasta, I recommend penne rigate or angel hair
½ cup heavy cream
20 leaves fresh basil, shredded or torn
Heat large skillet over moderate heat.
Add oil, butter, garlic, and shallots.
Gently sauté shallots for 3-5 minutes to develop their sweetness.

Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2-3 minutes.
Add chicken stock, tomatoes.
Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add cream when sauce is done simmering.
Mix with pasta and serve.
